Note: Applications must be turned in no later than 6 weeks prior to the date of your event. That gives our organization time to process the application, add work shifts, and communicate that shifts are available for our membership to sign up.

The Junior League of Abilene has refined its PAVE Grant Application to refocus on organizations and projects whose mission aligns with one or more of the following areas (1) food insecurity; (2) health and hygiene; and (3) clothing and other necessary resources for low-income children in Taylor County.

If your proposal isn’t within one of the above areas this year, you can still apply by telling us how your proposal will help benefit our community, specifically low income women and children. Priority will be assigned to organizations that fit with our League mission. A maximum amount of $1,000 may be awarded per project or event.

Before you begin a grant application for 2018-19 funding, consider how your organization’s event fits with the Junior League’s focus on:
(1) food insecurity;
(2) health and hygiene; and
(3) clothing and other necessary resources.
We’re dedicated to support our community agencies whose initiatives and programs have similar focuses. Ready to apply?
